Maintain Your Car To Keep It Running Well

images-32.jpgMany drivers are driving around with cars that are poorly maintained, and some of them find themselves stranded and calling for emergency roadside assistance.  To avoid finding yourself in this situation follow these tips.

It is important to maintain your tire pressure.  Underinflated tires cause tires to wear faster and make your gas mileage poor.  Also, it can feel like you’re driving with the parking brake on.  Your owner’s manual will tell you the proper tire pressure for your tires.

Next, you need to be aware of alignment problems.  If your steering feels different your car might need to be aligned.  To avoid having problems with your alignment try to steer clear of potholes.

Changing your oil on a regular basis is the best thing that you can do for your vehicle.  Typically, you should change your oil every 3,000 miles, however, you can wait a little longer if you’re using synthetic oil.

Following these easy tips can keep your car running well and help you avoid having to call for road service.
